CSEAS affiliated faculty member Liam Kelley of the History Department has just launched Viet Texts at https://sites.google.com/a/hawaii.edu/viet-texts/, a web page that contains translations of the following three important sources for early Vietnamese history:
- The Outer Annals (Ngoại kỷ) of the Complete Book of the Historical Records of Đại Việt (Đại Việt sử ký toàn thư)
- The Prefatory Compilation (Tiền biên) of the Imperially Commissioned Itemized Summaries of the Comprehensive Mirror of Việt History (Khâm định Việt sử thông giám cương mục)
- The Arrayed Tales of Selected Oddities from South of the Passes (Lính Nam chích quái liệt truyện)
The translation of the first two texts above was made possible through the generous support of a translation grant from the Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Grants to Individuals in East and Southeast Asian Archaeology and Early History. The input of the Chinese text for those two sources was supported by a National Resource Center Grant from the U.S. Department of Education to the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa.
